Haslam’s doctoral program provided me with a world-class opportunity in academic training for becoming a marketing scholar. I mean the two terms here literally.
First, by “world-class” I mean in the sense that on a global scale, where I’ve fortunately spent a lot of time conducting and presenting research, coming from Haslam you can readily compete with academics from all stripes and credentials. There has never been a time while enmeshed in that highly diverse mix of scholars, including ones from Ivy League institutions, that I felt anything less than either on par or beyond in terms of my knowledge.Read more
I will always cherish and value my time at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, which was, and will always be, a special place for me. I remember when I was evaluating and selecting Ph.D. programs, I decided on Haslam based on my initial meetings and interactions with faculty and current Ph.D. students. The culture really stood out to me as being unique.
From these meetings and interactions, it was very clear to me that faculty and students behaved as real colleagues and partners, where faculty viewed the doctoral students as junior faculty. This was very important to me, as I was seeking a challenging and rigorous, yet encouraging and warm, environment that would help me grow both professionally and personally.Read more

My experience in the PhD program at the University of Tennessee was truly transformational. Beyond a commitment to training students in rigorous scholarship that aims for the highest levels of impact, the faculty at Tennessee are dedicated to mentoring and supporting students in ways that stretch them to become the best they can be. The culture in the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management at Tennessee is marked by an extraordinary blend of collective ambition and collaboration that is truly rare in academia. Students are inspired to appreciate fundamental philosophy of science, develop rigorous contributions for prestigious research outlets, as well as apply their expertise to benefit organizations and society. I am sincerely grateful for my years there and, I am proud to call myself a Tennessee alumni.
